I was going to do my 30 Week Writing Challenge post today but Dave has been really busy at work lately and couldn't scan my pictures so that post is coming next week. And sorry I repeated some pictures from yesterday's post but some of them were necessary for this one too! #bloggerfail
CSA, for those of you who don't know, is when you pay a farmer to grow vegetables. They grow whatever they decide to and you get a regular share every week. My friend, Angie, started this CSA about six years ago and we joined to support her and because we wanted to eat locally. So every week from about mid-June to October, we get to go pick up our vegetables. (And flowers. And eggs. And meat.)
And Angie's partner, Darrel, has started selling organic meat, which he raises, at the pick up. Since our CSA months mean we eat a lot of BBQ with steamed greens, fresh salads, and/or grilled veggies, Dave has started buying some meat from Darrel to BBQ.
hakurei turnips. And a variety of greens. We make kale chips, we grill beets, we steam greens. And we all love them, especially Sam. He eats such a great variety of vegetables in the summer. He devours a bunch of kale (in chip form (baked with olive oil and a little salt)) like they're going out of style, he munches and crunches his way through kohlrabi and hakurei turnips, and, of course, every week, Angie gathers up some sorrel for Sam and he gets his special delivery.
And now I'm off to make some kale chips.
